* BloodlessCarnage: ''Averted'', particularly during the sequence where Batman is cornered by the cops at a construction site and nearly killed in an explosion, and in the climactic fight scene with the Joker, where both them end up torn and bloodied; at one point, Batman kicks the Joker in the face and ''knocks one of his teeth out''.

* InexplicablyAwesome: The Phantasm appears to have super strength, super speed, and smoke-related teleportation, and makes it pretty clear in a couple instances that the last one is a bona fide superpower. The movie never explains how the Phantasm is able to do ''any'' of this, save the Bat-computer's analysis that the Phantasm's gas is some sort of AppliedPhlebotinum (a complex molecular polymer of some sort.)

* IronicEcho: One of the mob bosses Phantasm kills had earlier said that Phantasm's previous victim [[JerkAss "always was a loser"]]. Right before Phantasm kills him, he says that the mob boss always was a loser.

As a result, the Joker initially suspects him of being the Phantasm (or hired him) to get rid of loose ends and confronts him. Though Joker quickly deduces that it's Andrea instead, he still doses Arthur with Joker toxin, leaving him hospitalized.]]

* LeaveYourQuestTest: Take away everything to do with Batman being framed, the Phantasm trying to get revenge on the Joker, and Bruce Wayne's failure to hold on to a woman, this is the core of the film, where Batman's ready to become a masked vigilante and go down the path of darkness and angst forever (although he hasn't seen any bats yet)...but has found happiness with Andrea Beaumont, the GirlOfTheWeek. This leads into one of the saddest scenes in all of the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjAFbEP0wK4 where he begs his (dead) parents to let him go]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: Batman and Joker's respective themes are carried over from the show (and benefit from the full orchestra). Composer Shirley Walker also created new leitmotifs for the Valestra Gang, the Bruce/Andrea romance, and the Phantasm.
